You think you’ve got a sinus infection (again) but don’t have time in your busy day to make it to the clinic. Save time with Allina Health Everyday Online. Our team of board-certified providers treat a variety of common everyday conditions virtually - for children to adults. Just complete a short online health interview and a provider will send you a diagnosis and treatment plan within one hour. An online medical visit costs just $49, or your insurance co-pay, whichever is less. If you cannot be treated virtually you will not be charged.
Online visits are no longer part of your Allina Health account (eVisit), but are now available on Allina Health Everyday Online
You can still expect care from trusted Allina Health providers but now with diagnosis and treatment of new common conditions, care for adults and children and a great online experience from any web-enabled device. To do an online visit you will need to create an account, separate from your Allina Health account.
About your online doctor visit
Allina Health Everyday Online is like an online medical clinic that provides you convenient online care for common everyday conditions, 24/7. The process is simple:
- Create an account (this is different than your Allina Health account)
- Answer a series of questions about how you’re feeling and the symptoms you are experiencing – this typically takes about five to 15 minutes.
- Provide payment information.
- A provider reviews the information you shared and responds to you within one hour with a diagnosis and treatment plan, including any necessary prescriptions.
That’s it! You’re on you way to feeling better without missing a beat in you busy day.
When you should get an online doctor visit
You can complete an online visit any time, including holidays.
An online diagnosis isn’t right for everyone or every condition. Most conditions we treat are for children and adults up to age 65. We are not able to provide online treatment for anyone with a serious health problem, including emphysema, diabetes, heart failure and immune disorders.
If your health concern cannot be addressed virtually, you may be directed to a clinic or urgent care. If this is the case, you will not be charged for your online visit.

You may submit your receipt to your insurance company, but we cannot guarantee you will be reimbursed. Online visits are not currently reimbursable with Medicare.
